Hi all,

Wun this bike in a competition on cars back in '97. I do like cars too and I know quite a lot about them. Never enter competitions, but now the first prize was this Koga MTB :P

It was very easy to work out the right size, as I already had a few at the time. Of course the Koga people were staggered....

It is a nice, light Tig steel frame with replaceable rearmech hanger(!). The colour is a kind petrol blue. Drivetrain, brakes etc are Shimano LX and XT. When the bike arrived I did a grab in the partsbin. Answer ATAC, Bonty Ti, rasta Kooka post, RondWP HydroPro 2, older XT QRs, brakeboosters ...............and a lot spacers came on. As said the bike is from '97, but the somewhat earlier parts, the steel frame give the bike a bit more classic impression.

The rear brakebooster is very funny btw. It is made out multiple print plates glued together. IMAGE

Cheers,
Melvin

The Flite is green and 'Flite' is in yellow. It is no leather, but a kind of space age knock off leather..... Actually I don't know
